Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
Lots of people will never change their minds on them, but I'm certainly beginning to think that after a rough early tenure they are deserve some credit.

No one can argue we're not moving forward compared to when they came in.

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
When the new athletics stadium in Birmingham is up and running I can see our owners being kind enough to take the stadium off LCC's hands for a £1.

Cheap, CHEAP?!?!

Something very fucking dodgy went on with the ground sale it absolutely stinks.

Those flats are going up to 500k a pop.

Should be banged up for it.

Yeh selling their ground for money. Something we cannot now do.
We sold ours on the cheap.

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
Goose if this was just a business deal then yes the property that a business owns does make a difference to the price because you can move the business to a cheaper location and sell off the asset for a profit. with a football team its different you need top play somewhere and you cant just up sticks and move. so the ground becomes a burden rather and an asset. many clubs are selling there grounds and leasing them back....thats why!

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
For £300m you could buy Newcastle or Palace or Watford or Brighton.
Why would you spend £400m more on West Ham?

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
It's not the renting of it, as it's low rent, it's the fact we make very little overall because we've got such a good deal on those rent repayments.

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
Pat why would anyone spend £700m on a football club that doesn’t own it’s own ground?

It would only really work if it wasn't a rebuild project.

Give it the fans would work perfectly
Now that would be some great owners...

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
Mex, how about the rich Arab/Russian route then they get bored and sell it to us fans after 5 years of non-stop top-end investment?

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
Would you lot prefer rich kind foreign owners to us fans owning the club?

Nope they are tight arsed cunts. And always will be.

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
I don' think the fact that we rent the stadium makes us any less attractive to a buyer in the future. in fact with the deal we have for the OS quite the opposite!.

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
No-one is stupid enough to pay £700m for a football club with very few tangible assets,

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
Yeah, we don't want foreign types owning us, I mean who wants owners who might actually respect their fans for goodness sake.

We might find they arrange for charter trains for away fans when an evening game ends after the last train home like Chelsea have, or regularly hand out vouchers for free food and drink at home games to celebrate the owners birthday like Leicester or not try and misappropriate the away fans fund when it was in existence like our good old British West Ham supporting fans did.

"I don’t want Arabs or Russians."

Good point, we might enjoy the success Man City or Chelsea have enjoyed, hardly the West Ham way is it?

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
It's not about us finding new owners as the current ones have to want to sell at a reasonable price. It's about not accepting their shit and praising them for what any owners are doing at other PL clubs.

This under invest in the club but cover it up because it is on paper large sums of money, they come completely unstuck when it's pointed out that they are on par for other clubs and their sizes.

They give no more or no less than required.

Re: Is it time to re-evaluate the owners?
But what is the solution?
I think the only alternative is to get the club owned by the members and the season ticket holders. How can we get that?
It’s quite common in continental Europe, Barca and Real Madrid are owned by the members.
I think all owners will be crap in someway. I don’t want Arabs or Russians.
